When you're looking to maximize the signal reaching your camera, you need more aperture: Nothing quite provides value for aperture like a Newtonian. While trends are focusing on more complex (and expensive) reflectors and increasingly novel refractors, Apertura has launched the imaging Newtonian back into the conversation with the CarbonStar 150. When paired with the included Apertura 0.95x Photographic Reducing Coma Corrector (PRCC), you get close to 20% more illumination in the center of frame when compared to the previous 6" f/4 imaging model alone!

The Apertura CarbonStar 150 Imaging Newtonian is designed, first and foremost, for astrophotography, with optics that deliver a relatively large aperture and a quick focal ratio. With a 150mm (about 6") primary mirror, this Netwonian reflector comfortably offers more light gathering power than most refractors at a similar price point, and with its f/4 design, the CarbonStar is much faster than popular SCT reflectors of the same size. The mirrors forming the 600mm focal length optical design are made with enhanced aluminum coated borosilicate, complete with a silicon dioxide overcoat that provides a layer of protection. This scope packs excellent optics into a package weighing just 10.4 lbs. and measuring less than 20" in length.
